Ed was born on May 30, 1955 in Burnaby, BC. He passed away suddenly on December 2, 2018 in The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan at the age of 63. Beloved husband of Annette Pardais. Dear brother of Don Mann. Loving nephew of Emmy Matty. Ed will also be missed by his brother/sisters-in-law Rawlins Pardais, Sabrina Sookhoo, Rosanna Badree, Marina Tayloo, Andra Ramsundar and Denise Ramkhelawan; his mother-in-law Phoebe Pardais all of Edmonton. He is also fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and cousins, especially Sandra Miller and Yvonne Hockley.

Ed received a BSc in Chemistry from Simon Fraser University in 1978 and his MBA from UBC in 1982. He articled for his CA at the Auditor General of Alberta and received his designation in 1990. Ed joined the accounting firm Green Horwood in 2004 where he continued to work until his passing.

Ed was always eager to learn and did so through his love of reading and travel. He also enjoyed the time he spent gardening. Community involvement was also an integral part of Ed’s life, devoting his time as an organizer of the monthly St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church breakfast for the needy as well as on the Board of Directors for the Greater Victoria Elder Care Foundation.

A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, December 17, 2018 at 2:00 pm with viewing one hour prior at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 680 Courtney St., Victoria, BC.

    Dear Annette,

    As you know I was so sad when you told me of Ed’s passing. Over the years I came to rely on Ed’s competency and solid advice. I also so appreciated his acting as treasurer for the Victoria Children’s Museum board. He was a lovely man and I miss him.

    with love,
    Julian Young

    Dear Annette,
    My sincerest condolences on the loss of your husband.
    Ed was a wonderful, witty individual with a quick mind and a big heart. He worked on my family’s taxes for years and I always looked forward to working with him when tax season came around. It would usually take a few exchanges of email and phone calls. And we always talked about the more important things like family and vacations.
    What a tremendous loss. My heart goes out to you and your extended family.
